Cuando invade el globo ocular puede producir un desprendimiento de retina. Pedro Rico, 27, Madrid, Tlf.: In patients with NF1, it is not unusual for these tumours to be quiescent, with little progression demonstrated over some years.

In this article we first review the embryological development, anatomy, natural history, and surgical treatment, and then describe the role of radiotherapy RT in the considered entity, indicating how it can be integrated in the pattern of present day care.

Optic nerve sheath meningiomas and advanced treatment options. In large intracranial tumours symptoms of raised intracranial pressure, focal neurological deficits and hydrocephalus from distortion of the midbrain may also be encountered. Relatively little has been said regarding the pathologic study and classification of these gllioma 1 since the introduction of the impregnation methods of Cajal and del Rio-Hortega.

The introduction of conventional radiation therapy in the late s, alone or in combination with surgery, and above all the introduction of Fractionated Stereotactic Radiotherapy and Three-Dimensional Conformal Intensity-Modulated Radiotherapy 3DCRT have provided very efficient alternative glooma with a relatively low toxicity.
